By using modern technology we can create innovations that affect individuals, communities and businesses alike.
Connect with driven young people from Europe and Canada and develop ideas for our future on the topic of "Fast & Expanding Cities"! Discuss how technological advancements are changing our understanding of cities and living together! How can we use digitality to build an inclusive society?
